Verse 1 – Oh, give thanks to the Lord for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

Verse 2 – Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endures forever.

Verse 3 – Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy endures forever;

When you hear or say the same thing over and over it will stick in your mind – “God’s mercy endures forever!” I say, “Thank you Lord, because I need a lot of mercy, all the time.”

Verse 4 – To Him who alone does great wonders, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 5 – To Him who by wisdom made the heavens, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 6 – To Him who laid out the earth above the waters, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 7 – To Him who made great lights, for His mercy endures forever –

Verse 8 – The sun to rule by day, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 9 – The moon and the stars to rule by night, for His mercy endures forever.

Verse 10 – To Him who struck Egypt in their firstborn, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 11 – And brought out Israel from among them, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 12 – With a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 13 – To Him who divided the Red Sea in two, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 14 – And made Israel pass through the midst of it, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 15 – But overthrew Pharaoh and His army in the Red Sea, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 16 – To Him who led His people through the wilderness, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 17 – To Him who struck down great kings, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 18 – And slew famous kings, for His mercy endures forever –

Verse 19 – Sihon King of the Amorites, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 20 – And Og, King of Bashan, for His mercy endures forever –

Verse 21 – And gave their land as a heritage, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 22 – A heritage to Israel His servant, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 23 – Who remembered us in our lowly state, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 24 – And rescued us from our enemies, for His mercy endures forever;

Verse 25 – Who gives food to all flesh, for His mercy endures forever.

Verse 26 – Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven! For His mercy endures forever.

These verses were sung with the congregation singing, “For His mercy endures forever.” But notice: In everything the psalmist said, you can see God’s mercy came with what God did.

Someone should never think that they’ve blown it so bad that God would never show His mercy towards them. You should never let that keep you from returning back to God if you have drifted.
